Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the Learning Revolution!

Some months ago, we asked you to name your favorite TED Talk. And, more than a few of you flagged Sir Ken Robinson’s presentation from 2006, Do Schools Kill Creativity? You’re in good company. The talk remains one of TED’s most popular videos of all time. Today, TED has released Robinson’s sequel (of sorts). Recorded this past February, Bring on the Learning Revolution! “makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning — creating conditions where kids’ natural talents can flourish.” Give it some time. Perhaps it’s another talk for the ages.

    Dear Sir Robinson,

    I was so amazed when I viewed the you tube segment regarding education and creativity! I have just left the public school system due to needing surgery on my foot.I taught dance for the past ten years and had developed a curriculum that encouraged thinking and creativity to a very high degree. So many students are bored in school because there are limited challenges and even more limited outlets for the genuine use of the imagination.
    I have started writing a book regarding my mentor and how she opened my mind, heart and body. Your discussion about Jillian was so close to my own experience, that I was left breathless.
    I would love to participate in any future conference regarding education and creativity. Please forward the information to me regarding future conferences on this topic.

    Thank you for your wonderfully humorous approach to such a serious topic. I laughed and listened!
